Castor oil has been used for centuries as a natural hair conditioner and scalp treatment. We combine this with coconut oil and olive oil to produce a rich, moisturising shampoo. The essential oils of lavender and tea tree are favoured for their antibacterial qualities and promoting healthy hair growth. A long-lasting and compact alternative to plastic bottles of liquid shampoo, one Friendly shampoo bar will last as long as three bottles of liquid shampoo. And it loves to travel. Each bar is handmade with Castor Oil, Coconut Oil, Olive Oil, Lavender and Tea Tree essential oils, water. And nothing else. All our soaps are Free from Palm Oil, Parabens, Sulphates, Triclosan, Phthalates & Cruelty, as well as being boxed in plastic free recycled (and recyclable) packaging. We are also registered with The Vegan Society, Cruelty Free International and have a Best rating with Ethical Consumer.
